Puppy Game Styles - Read All About Dogs on Wikipet!
Almost all puppies, if they are socialized, like to play with their relatives, but they play differently. And this is worth considering when choosing a pet companions for games.
What can be the puppy's playing styles?
- “Catch me if you can!” Puppies chase each other, and periodically change roles. If both puppies like to catch up or run away, a full game will not work. It is very important to ensure that both partners in the game enjoy it, that is, the pursuer does not turn into a pursuer, and the runaway does not become a terrifying victim in horror.
- "Street dance". Puppies touch each other with their paws, sometimes pushing with the back, bouncing and making circles around each other.
- Friendly Kus. Dogs bite each other's neck or body parts. At the same time, they can flaunt and demonstrate a complete set of teeth. It is very important to observe the body language of the dogs so that the game does not go into a fight.
- "Freestyle wrestling". One running puppy crashes into another, and then the fuss begins. However, keep in mind that not all dogs can appreciate this style of play. Some perceive such an impolite invasion of an individual distance as an attack and can respond accordingly. In addition, it is worth considering the weight categories of players so that the fun does not end with injuries.
Whatever the puppy's playing style, it is necessary to constantly monitor the body language of the dogs and take breaks if the level of excitement begins to go off scale or at least one of the partners stops enjoying communication.
